PO2: Starting Salary £37,260 pa rising in annual increments to £40,155 pa incl. LW
It is exciting times for Lambeth’s parks and open spaces: in 2021 we were in the top 3 valued things by residents about the borough in our most recent resident survey; we were the highest performing borough in London in Bloom; increased our numbers of Green Flag Awards; came second in the Good Parks for London Guide; and have an ambitious Capital Programme.
Lambeth’s parks and open spaces are a valuable asset and resource for Lambeth’s residents and visitors, essential for their health, well-being, and quality of life. We take pride in ensuring they remain a great asset for the Lambeth community and future generations to enjoy.
This is an exciting opportunity to join our Parks Service as one of five Parks Development Officers and make a big impact within Lambeth Parks for the local community.
As a Parks Development Officer, you will be responsible for the management and development of a number of parks, working closely with our in-house operations team and stakeholder groups. This will include implementing improvements, project and budget management, and looking for opportunities to generate income. You will also be the main point of contact with the local Friends Group and other stakeholders, as well as being required to engage with the wider community to increase their involvement in parks including leading workdays.
The successful candidate will have knowledge of parks management and relevant experience in a parks role or similar. You will need to have good communication, IT and interpersonal skills, as the role involves close working with the public and developing strong working partnerships with both internal and external stakeholders.
If you feel that you can meet these needs and are passionate about helping us to maintain our parks, then we would love to hear from you.
Closing date: Monday 18 April 2022 at midnight
